New Toadies Music – The Lower Side of Uptown

The Lower Side of Uptown – Toadies Album Review

There are no shortage of rock bands from the 90’s still making albums and touring today.  That said, it is rare for a band from that era to release arguably their best album more than 2 decades later.  The Fort Worth, Texas quartet have done just that on The Lower Side of Uptown.

New Album from TJ Kong & The Atomic Bomb

TJ Kong & The Atomic Bomb – Dancing Out the Door

Album Review: Staring Into Nothing – Power

I am a huge proponent of progressive music, in all shapes and sizes. But what exactly is progressive music. Well… there are the flag bearers in Rush and Yes. There are the soothing sounds of Stephen Wilson and Porcupine Tree. There are the heavier visions of Devin Townsend or Dream Theater. Some have called System of a Down progressive. There is Tool, The Mars Volta, ISIS…Marillion, hell even Metallica has tromped into the progressive realm…. But it’s hard to hit what exactly that term means.

Untraveled Roads with Thousand Foot Krutch

Thousand Foot Krutch Release Live Album – Untraveled Roads

Creating an impactful, meaningful live album has always been a challenge for rock bands.  For every legendary Live At Fillmore East or Live At Budokon, there are just as many forgettable Who’s Lasts and Tokyo Dome Live In Concerts littering the cutout bins.  TFK’s upcoming live release, Untraveled Roads manages to avoid the pitfalls experienced by The Who and Van Halen, and they deliver a damn good live album.

Sleeptalk Releases New Indie Album

Sleeptalk: Track-by-track

Sleeptalk is the type of band that sounds as if it came straight out of an Indie film. Soft, filled with an upbeat yet gentle sound, and almost iconic in nature. Their newest album, by the same name, starts off with a short intro, also entitled “Sleeptalk”. The silky beat almost makes listeners feel as if they’re floating. The blend of far-away sounding voices with a slow-moving beat makes for a great opener for the album.
